Interesting. I didn't actually compare the shift distance with other apertures. Maybe I'll do that tonight, but really, I'm a little sick of testing this out. Time to take some real pictures.
Overall, I'm happy with the lens, and the pictures it can take are beautiful. I haven't even noticed the problem (after getting it back from calibration) with everyday shooting.
Then no worries right?
As far as all the talk about this lens "shifting"? if in fact it does (which the experts here say it does so I won't attempt to argue the point, because you guys are way more knowledgable on the Tech side than I.) but..... it is not noticable at all on mine, and I mean zero effect...I have quite a bit of experience with the 50L shift, I knew when to expect it, I knew how it would act, I guess I understood it and............... I loathed it.
I see none of the same characteristics with the EX50/1.4....I'd like to see more on the subject....Then again.....nevermind, I think I'm happier not knowing more...LOL
